1. The Savior’s Victory at Calvary
This is the first and maybe one of the most exciting truths in this list! Christ’s victory over death on Calvary cast out the prince of this world (John 12:31). Christ claimed victory over death and simultaneously handed Satan the defeat (Hebrews 2:14). We, as believers, have the privilege of claiming the blood of the Lamb who was slain for us and join in His conquering of the devil (Revelation 12:11).
5. The Spirit’s Indwelling Power
Not only are we protected by Christ, but we are also accompanied by the power of the Holy Spirit. John again tells us that the power of the Holy Spirit within us is so much greater than the power of any evil from without. I love the truth of 1 John 4:4 – “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.” What a powerful truth for every believer to grab hold of!
6. The Knowledge of Satan’s Schemes
Did you ever wonder why Jesus tells us so much about Satan and how he works in this world? It is for just this reason. He wants us to know how Satan works so that “we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Corinthians 2:11). Someone pointed out to me recently that Peter encourages us to cast all our cares on Christ and then in the next verse he reminds us that once we have placed all those cares on Him, that we MUST be watchful of the devil’s tactics (1 Peter 5:7-8). What we know about Satan is there to help us not fall prey to his schemes!
10. Confidence That Christ Has Won the Ultimate Victory
Finally, we come to the last truth which is transformational for our fight against evil – THE BATTLE HAS ALREADY BEEN WON! We fight from victory since we know the end of the story. When all is said and done at the end of the Millennium, Jesus will be the ultimate Victor over sin and Satan and all that comes with that. Satan will be eternally judged just as Jesus predicted (Revelation 20:10). This impending victory should incite confidence in our hearts that we can live in victory over sin and evil today!
